NCAA Football: California at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

WSU fans were barely finished exhaling following the narrow win against California before the attention already turned to Colorado.

The Cougars and Buffaloes have had a back-and-forth history since Colorado joined the Pac-12, alternating wins in each meeting. The Cougars won last year, so hopefully that back-and-forth streak ends this year.

While the entire roster has turned over since WSU’s first win against Colorado as a Pac-12 foe, there are several Cougs with experience against the Buffs. Including a few who have found the end zone.

Q1: Name the four Cougars on the current roster who have scored a touchdown against Colorado.

With the win against California, the Cougars have now won 12 straight games at home. That streak isn’t on the line this week, but is the second-longest in WSU history.

Q2: Who was the WSU head coach the only time the Cougars had a longer home winning streak?
